Last week’s fight over the best of Clint Eastwood was full of controversy over who picked Unforgiven first. LC chimed in with her oft nominated The Good The Bad and The Ugly and shifted the argument. Eastwood’s Empty Chair speech was also right up there with the leaders, as was Gran Torino, but in the end […]

  In a battle of movies outshined by their soundtracks, boomer favorites The Big Chill, and Saturday Night Fever spent the week garnering votes. Gen X favorite Purple Rain made a showing thanks to a millennial (good one, LC), and no doubt a few purists nostalgically dusted off the vinyl this week walking down memory […]

In fight 108 we discussed remakes and argued about what constitutes an original. There were a few chairs thrown around regarding the “original” animated Lord of The Rings but it didn’t win so that controversy didn’t matter in the final result. Actually, the fight was sort of over from the first comment by Stina. She […]

I knew from the moment Saint Augustine suggested it that a question about the best Sci-fi movie would generate a exhaustive response of Rico nerddom. I had no idea it would become the longest thread in RMFC history. After scrolling 11 pages of debate, mostly about Star Trek, we ended up with a tie between […]

Last week, LC got us talking about smart and clever movies. A wide range of genres were tossed around, everything from slapstick comedy to sinister dramas with even some zombie action thrown in. It came down to two vastly different comedies: Blazing Saddles versus Groundhog Day in a 15 point tie. LC had the honor […]

In the latest round of our perennial game of leapfrog for most wins, LC scored a victory and brought herself even with Eustace once again. I’m not sure how many times LC has nominated The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in various fights, but I know the sting of its split-decision loss in fight […]

Good and bad symbolism was the topic of last week’s fight. After a week of debate we settled on nothing, resulting in a three-way tie between ctlaw, 9thdistrictneighbor, and Hartmann Von Aue. TBA was forced to make the call and did so in favor of the Dark lord known as Vader, win number two for […]

Last week was all about outtakes. And while the competition was light, it provided a much needed endorphin dose after a hard week. Jackie Chan and few grumpy old men tried but couldn’t top the gang at pre-Disney Pixar. TBA called it, earning the right to ask: What do you think was the most blatant […]

In the wee hours of last Saturday I found a PM from Tex929rr about a new, movie question he was pondering. As I wiped the sand from my slowly waking eyes I dismissed him with a short reply of, “Maybe you’ll win.” Lo and behold he did, with a runaway entry that dwarfed the next […]

What a week. Since we’ve been fighting all week about other issues, why not start a relaxing Saturday fighting about pointless matters instead? This is why RMFC was created in the first place, by the way. Last week we saw Eustace and LC duke it out in our video fight. If you missed it, go […]

Welcome to Ricochet Movie Fight Club.  We began this in the summer of 2020 as a weekend escape from the news cycle. Since that first fight we’ve had 37 individual winners out of 99 fights. As a way of celebrating our 100th fight I thought it would be fun to have two of our winningest […]

From the moment the question was posted last week  we all knew that Gary Oldman was sure to take the prize for the most unrecognizable actor in a role, we just weren’t sure which one. As it turned out, Oldman’s Churchill via The Darkest Hour took the prize. The win brought LC back into the […]

Last week we discussed movies that fell apart in the third act. M Knight Shyamalan, Spielberg, Scorsese, and a pair of well deserved Kubrick entries were represented. In the end it was Joel and Ethan Coen’s ballad to nihilism whose ending sucked the most, which happened to be my entry. So today I ask you […]

It is often lamented that to win these fights one must get their picks in early. However, there have been a special few who’ve dashed the hopes of those early birds on subsequent pages. BDB looked at the competition, saw LC and Andrew Miller in a pitched battle for first with Richard O’Shea, Adios Muchacho, […]

Saturday morning dawned on April 5th, 2020 and with it came the Ricochet Movie Fight Club. Since that day we’ve hammered out some of the great questions in film history…and some that we really didn’t need answered. Here is a listing of previous RMFC questions. Later on this post will serve as the master list […]

We had a great fight last week trashing the movies Hollywood loved. A pedophile, a few people languishing in the desert, and a fake love story about Shakespeare couldn’t top first time winner Dmak and the snoozefest known as The English Patient.  Dmak asks: What is the most rewatchable movie of all time?The Rules: Post […]

We spent last week discussing bad movies that are actually good. Or was it good movies that are actually bad? I don’t know exactly how it was supposed to work but it played out to where National Treasure ended up battling The Last Action Hero. I guess most of you either don’t like National Treasure […]
